Margy's reaction to FA Trophy draw

FC United of Manchester have been drawn away to Bradford Park Avenue in the Preliminary round of the FA Carlsberg Trophy with the match due to be played on Saturday 6th October 2007.

If United win they will progress to the First Qualifying Round where they will face Sheffield FC at home which is scheduled for Saturday 20th October 2007.

Manager Karl Marginson knows that the West Yorkshire club, who narrowly missed out on promotion to the Unibond Northern Premier Division last season after losing in a play off to Eastwood Town, will present a tricky task.

He said: "It’s a tough one. They’re throwing a lot of money into it this year so they should be a good side. It’s one we’ll look forward to though as always and I imagine, providing we do the business, they will be rivals for the title this season so it’ll be a good insight into where we stand."

If the Reds are victorious they will enjoy the chance to renew acquaintances with the oldest football club in the world, Sheffield FC, who edged a 1-0 victory over Margy’s men in July 2006 at the Don Valley Stadium during a preseason friendly.
